    Amer Raheemullah

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

    BioDr. Amer Raheemullah, MD, is Clinical Assistant Professor at Stanford University in the Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Department. He specializes in the treatment of addiction, has published chapters and peer-reviewed articles in this area, and is Director of the Addiction Medicine Consult Service at Stanford Hospital. He is board-certified in Addiction Medicine and Internal Medicine and has a special interest in developing novel methods to increase access to addiction treatment, through criminal justice, healthcare, and tech-enabled solutions.

    He was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. While pursuing his undergraduate degree in Economics at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, he started free education and addiction programs inside Illinois jails and prisons, which continued through his Internal Medicine residency at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. He eventually started Madina House, a non-profit organization focusing on increasing access to addiction treatment for populations over-represented in the criminal justice system.

    After completing his Addiction Medicine fellowship at Stanford University School of Medicine, he stayed on the faculty and started the Stanford Hospital Addiction Medicine Consult Service. The service consists of addiction medicine specialists, social workers, substance use navigators, and peer mentors, and by the first year, 30-day readmission rates were reduced by 60% in substance use disorder patients treated by the service, without any increase in length of stay. He also works with the Silicon Valley digital technology startup, Lucid Lane, to put forth a nationwide response to the opioid epidemic, by leveraging data-driven, tech-enabled solutions to scale access to evidence-based treatment.

  • Hannah Elizabeth Raila

    Hannah Elizabeth Raila

    Adjunct Clinical Instructor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

    BioDr. Hannah Raila's training focuses the "diet" of visual information that we consume as we navigate the world (e.g., do we see the crack in the wall, or do we pass by it unaware?), the factors that predispose us to detect this emotional information in our environment the first place, and how this diet of information influences our emotions. To study our visual biases and how they relate to how we feel, she leverages tools from cognitive psychology - including eye tracking and continuous flash suppression (CFS).

    As a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Carolyn Rodriguez's lab, she is particularly interested in links between visual attention and emotion in OCD, and whether biased visual processing of obsession-related cues contributes to symptom severity.
